The Brothers

Stephen Kinzer - 2022

If American history is your thing you will love this very interesting book about the Dulles Brothers. Read how two brothers who grew up in a privileged family used their contacts and skills to become very influential New York City lawyers and then on to two of the most senior positions in our government. Then follow how they used their power and influence to do things internationally in the 1950s that most of us were unaware of.

From Amazon “Propelled by a quintessentially American set of fears and delusions, the Dulles brothers launched violent campaigns against foreign leaders they saw as threats to the United States. These campaigns helped push countries from Guatemala to the Congo into long spirals of violence, led the United States into the Vietnam War, and laid the foundation for decades of hostility between the United States and countries from Cuba to Iran.”
